2.4.1
20 March 2020

Task management with Markdown, calendar and notes.

Overview

NotePlan is designed to make your task planning more productive. It solves problems like bloated, ever-growing to-do lists.

  • Modern Writing - Enjoy a full writing area with Markdown and injected flavour for productivity.
  • Calendar Notes - A calendar shows you where the action is. Jump right into a day to manage it by writing notes into each day.
  • Backlog Notes - Save away your backlogs and general notes behind the daily planning and apart from the calendar.
Features
  • Full, modern writing tool included for every day of a month - NotePlan will give you the convenience of a modern writing editor supporting markdown. Add formatting to your task lists and notes to keep it better organized.
  • Monthly calendar overview with color-coded daily note content - See a summary of your notes and color coded lists in a monthly calendar view. Use keyboard shortcuts to navigate and quickly jump into a day to review or edit it. The calendar will also show you, if you missed out on some tasks, so nothing important slips from your mind.
  • Schedule tasks to stay organized - If you couldn't finish a task, don't leave it unmanaged on the list. Re-schedule it to another day. Or, if you manage a backlog, schedule a todo directly from there onto your calendar.
  • Backlogs, drafts, bug lists or just text notes, apart from the calendar - Some information is not related to a day and should be kept separated from the calendar. Like bug lists or project backlogs. They can be managed in NotePlan and scheduled directly into the calendar, when required. Notes can be organized by tagging them. In the overview you can filter your notes by tags.
  • Your notes are not saved on our servers. You will find them safe and sound in your iCloud Drive.
  • Integrations to useful apps like iCalender, Reminders, and more are available.

Solid app, regularly updated. Bought this a few months ago and am slowly migrating my Todoist tasks to it.

With the new 'markdown live rendering' (i.e. you see rich text, not markdown even though that's what it's using), this great task management app has become even more user-friendly. The same markdown rendering is also now live on the iPhone/iPad apps as well.

This is a great app for getting my tasks down and then organising them. Uses markdown as well as the built-in Reminders and Calendar across Mac and iOS

This has been such a wonderful discovery. I enjoy being able to mix notes, to-dos, links, etc. in the same area just for the day. The program keeps getting better.

I would have to say this is the best Task Manager app I’ve ever used (and yes I said the same thing about Things when it was still shiny and new after the upgrade to version 3). This works like a combination of TaskPaper (outline your tasks in plain text) and Things (get to see your Calendar events and todos in the same space as well as having a dedicated page for Today). I’ve only been using it for a few days but have already bought the iOS app and see myself buying the Mac app once the demo is over.

I've had NotePlan for my Mac and iPhone since the betas. I use it in conjunction with Things 3. The beauty of NotePlan for me is that it allows me to break down tasks for projects quite easily, and then work through them on a calendar-ToDo list. I could do this with Things or OmniFocus, but I like how NotePlan allows me to delineate my tasks within a project without over crowding a GTD program like Things. I may not need both, but I am more productive using them together. One more thing: the developer is great. He seems to be genuinely interested in user input, and her responds to queries and suggestions quickly and thoroughly.
